vi uses your shell (taken from the SHELL environment var) to expand
the ~. If your login shell is /bin/csh, then it will execute your
.cshrc. Something in your .cshrc is generating the extra characters,
Don't run tset from your .cshrc. Or at least add the following bit
of code to the beginning:
if ( ! $?prompt ) exit
RTFM for further details.
